Receive Critical Emergency Alerts!#
The Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority, or commonly known as LETA 9-1-1, is the organization that governs 9-1-1 inside Larimer County. This organization provides a multitude of services to the County, but residents of Fort Collins should know about their Emergency Alerts and Text to 9-1-1 programs.
Commonly known as Reverse 9-1-1, all of Larimer County's public safety organizations use LETA's NOCO Alerts system. Critical and life saving information is passed on to the public through this service, and done so in a quick and efficient manner.
You can sign up to receive emergency and/or non-emergency notifications for the locations you need and on the devices you prefer.
NOCO Alerts provides the following alerts to those who sign up!
- Missing endangered child, also known as an Amber Alert
- Missing endangered adult
- Police Activity that would require you to evacuate or take shelter
- Natural Gas Leaks
- Severe Threatening Weather
- Large Hail

If we can't reach you, we can't notify you!
Why Sign Up?#
Signing up for NOCO Alerts ensures that you receive critical and urgent information regarding your public safety. This service will automatically alert all landline phones in the affected areas, but don't limit your notification to a landline phone!
When you sign up you can register to receive alerts on your cell phone (voice and text), work phone, and e-mail. You can also register telephones at different locations that you feel are important. Those locations might be the homes of elderly family members, childcare centers, or schools.
LETA promises that your information will only be used for emergency purposes. None of the information you provide will be sold or provided to other vendors or organizations.
